Prayer of the Day Another Altar Servers Prayer

Altar Servers Prayer

Open my mouth, O Lord, to bless your Holy Name.
Cleanse my heart from all evil and distracting thoughts.
Enlighten my understanding and inflame my will
that I may serve more worthily at your holy altar.
O Mary, Mother of Christ the High Priest,
obtain for me the most important grace
of knowing my vocation in life.
Grant me a true spirit of faith and humble obedience,
so that I may ever behold the priest as a representative of God
and willingly follow him in the Way,
the Truth, and the Life of Christ.

I came across this prayer in the documentation that was handed over when i took over altar server formation. There was a prayer booklet created at our parish for altar servers many years ago. I really like this prayer and wanted to share it. I wonder if this prayer is part of the reason our parish switched from black to red cassocks for the younger alter servers. And will share others as time goes on. With a hat tip to the Canadian Rosary Brigade. Below is a picture of another prayer we have up in the sacristy.  I posted another of the Altar Server prayers here
